The Black Coats Reviews

    Jun 21, 2018
    Inspired by a black coat sitting on the road in Nebraska, grief at the death of a beloved friend and a fascination with vigilante justice, The Black Coats is a story that I've wanted to tell for a long time. It's a story about revenge, about women saying "enough" with their fists a...

    DNF 50% I think this is a case of a great concept that just needed more. When I read the description, I had it in my head that this would be set in a different time period. I'm not sure why, but going into it, I thought we were going to see some badass Victorian ladies kicking a...

    Powerful. Personal. Necessary. These three words keep coming to mind when I think of my experience reading Colleen Oakes latest novel ?The Black Coats? and how I intend to describe it in passionate pleas for everyone I know to read it. A contemporary YA novel with beautifully d...

    This is a powerful story about getting justice for women for the times they?ve been hurt by men. The times the law didn?t fairly punish and let a criminal walk free with barely a slap on the wrist. A story about the women who?ve been victims and have to suffer alone while their a...

    Whoa. I was NOT expecting to love this one as much as I did! Real review to come! **EDIT 02/28/19** You can find more of my reviews here at my blog: Take Me Away... I'm going to be honest here and say I almost didn't read this. I read Oakes' debut and let me just tell you, it...

    When I first saw this book on Goodreads and read the premise, I was hooked. I immediately added it onto one of my several wishlists. Less than two weeks after adding it, by sheer luck, I won an Advanced Reader's Copy in a contest. I thanked the book gods and I couldn't wait to dig in. ...

    Trigger warnings for this book: rape, sexual assault and allusions/accusations thereof, racism, death of a loved one. Picking up this next book from Colleen Oakes in ARC form at work, I expected it to be a rewrite of her Peter Pan-themed fantasy retelling just like Queen of Hearts a...

    I was lucky enough to win this from a giveaway. I want to thank Harper Teen for providing me with this arc. First thoughts: The epilogue blew me away and made me want to read further. After reading further: The writing was hard to adjust to but after about 70 pages I really star...

    If you are looking for an intense YA read with some realistic but badass heroines, this is the novel you should pick up in February. It's a cross between the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter and THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES by Mindy McGinnis. This is a web of a book with multiple...

    The Black Coats is a secret society of women who plot and execute revenge on men who have hurt them or other women and girls in their lives to teach them a lesson and get even. Could this sound any more awesome?!? The book is dark, and secretive and chock full of girl power. It's a fas...

    This was gloriously readable and I stayed up way too late last night trying unsuccessfully to finish it. A secret society of women made to fuck up men who fuck up women? Uh yeah, sign me up for that. My only complaint is that it's billed as look at justice vs. revenge and I think it co...

    If this book is not yet on your radar or on your TBR, it needs to be! Hands down 5/5 stars for The Black Coats by Colleen Oakes because ZOMG! This book comes out next month and if you appreciate vigilante justice and feminist kickassedness, then you need to preorder immediately. Brutal...

    I tried so hard to like this book. The concept was interesting and it has a good plot, but it's the writing and the execution that was a let down. The pacing was very slow which didn't suit the vigilante justice theme and the writing was flat boring. It should have been fast paced and ...

    3 stars. I enjoyed this for the most part considering vigilante feminists is probably my favorite trope of all time, but the characters and the writing bogged it down for me. It was going to be at least a 3.5 right after I finished it, but it's only two days later and I don't rea...

    I was really disappointed with this book. I was really hoping for a deeper exploration of grief, vengeance, justice, and retribution as filtered through the persepctive of a character that has been affected by crime/violence. What I got was a watered down teen mystery/conspiracy story ...

    The question that comes to mind as I read this book is: What if women got tired of perpetually asking themselves, ?Is this safe?? or What is we wanted better for our daughters? This is a fun and adventurous read for teens. It asks hard questions about the morally grey of life with ...

    Where do I even start?!? I loved this book so much!!! There wasn?t a dull moment for me! I enjoyed getting to know Thea and the rest of Team Banner (who I quickly fell in love with.) Drew was perfection and who can forget Nixon and Sahil? The ending was so action packed and filled wi...

    This book had so much potential. A book about a group of teenage vigilantes who wreak vengeance upon the men who hurt them? While wearing stylish black coats? I had the book downloading before I finished reading the blurb. Five reading sessions and 340 pages later, I felt like a bi...

    A powerful, relevant, and timely concept that tragically didn?t reach its full potential. I?ll start with this: As much as I'm about to criticize it, The Black Coats wasn?t a bad book. The problem is I had such high hopes for a book about a secret society of women vigilantes wh...
